Ngorongoro Highlands Walking Safari:

Discover the unique landscape that varies from green forest and savannah to mountains, craters, lakes and waterfalls. At the end of you trek you visit Lake Natron, known for its amazing colors and one of the world’s main breeding sites for flamingos. Apart from the captivating landscapes, this trekking also gives you a glimpse into the culture and lifestyle of the fascinating Maasai people who inhabit the area.

This trek takes you into the remote Ngorongoro Highlands where you'll see stunning scenery, including one of the country's youngest and most active volcanoes, flamingo-filled crater lakes and Maasai tending their livestock and going about their daily lives.

Each day will show you different aspects of this little-visited part of Tanzania. You'll pass through the Great Rift Valley en-route to the highlands to begin the trek at Empakai Crater. You'll be walking through forest, providing welcome shade, to the emerald green lake. The next day you'll enjoy fabulous views from the crater rim before descending into meadow-land where you'll witness scenes of the Maasai pastoral lifestyle. On the third day the scenery become more arid as you follow a traditional trade route to the foot on Oldonyo Lengai, from where you'll be driven to the shores of Lake Natron.

Ngorongoro highlands walking safari is the best active safari, so you won't find any lodges on the route, which is part of its charm. Instead you'll be staying in private campsites, where you'll have a dome tent with a mattress, sleeping bag and fleece liner. The first and last campsites include a shower tent with hot water on request, while the middle site is a fly-camp with a more limited water, but you'll have access to a basin with warm water for washing. In all three camps you'll be attended by an experienced team who'll take care of all the chores, though you're welcome to help if you want! Your day will start with a nourishing breakfast and end with a scrummy dinner eaten by lamplight out in the African bush.
